In 1982 the SEGAL (Shell Esso Gas and Associated Liquids) system first came on stream to handle rich gas production from the Brent field initially and then from the Fulmar field with a steady increase of tie-ins, field operators and owners over the years.
The system was set up as a Joint Venture between Shell and Esso with Shell as the operator. Sales gas deliveries from St. Fergus gas terminal are integral to meeting the UK gas requirements on a daily basis.
The SEGAL system is made up of two wet gas transportation pipelines, the St. Fergus gas terminal, Fife NGL terminal and Braefoot Bay tanker loading facility. Wet gas is transported from the Northern North Sea along the Far north Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) line to St. Fergus and from the Central North Sea along the Fulmar Gas Line (FGL).
Access to Upstream oil and gas infrastructure
High level capacity and facilities information on Shell operated oil and gas infrastructure in the UK Continental Shelf for Prospective users.
For general enquiries regarding access to upstream infrastructure operated by Shell, please contact shell’s upstream ICOP champion, Neil Angell on +44 (0) 20 7934 3989.
At the St. Fergus terminal a deep cryogenic extraction process is used to recover NGLs from the wet gas streams and deliver sales gas to the National Transmission System (NTS).
The Fife NGL Plant processes NGLs from the St Fergus Gas Terminal as well as from the Total and SAGE wet gas terminals.
The Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal is a permanently manned installation designed for the ship loading of natural gas liquid products received by underground pipelines from the Fife NGL Plant.
